news editor for the morning times sam sifton, kiran simone and the always buzzy ben smith. for eight hours yesterday senate republicans directed their sharpest lines of inquiry towards defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. it's too bad most of it had nothing to do with the against defense department or what chuck hagel's record really says about what he might do with the defense department or really what chuck hagel's record actually is. freshman senator and deputy gum shoe ted cruz looked for needles in a haystack, parsing fragments of hagel's quotes circa 2006. >> in a speech on the floor of the senate you referred to israel's military campaign against the terrorist group hezbollah as a "sickening slaughter." now, i would suggest the characterizations. do you think it's right that israel was creating a sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate. >> i think, again, i would want to read all of it, what i said. >> what cruz and his cracker jack detective work did not reveal was the actual substance of hagel's quote, which reads in full.

you.
